The Big Bend of Texas – Photographs by Joe Trussell

photograph by Joe Trussell

Look for more stunning photos like this one in Joe Trussell’s collection of black and white photographs on the wall at Redbud Cafe this summer.

All of Joe Trussell’s work on display at Redbud Cafe will be available for purchase through Brieger Pottery.

About the Artist:

I have been going into the Big Bend country for almost 40 years. I first saw it in 1978. My first look at the Chihuahuan desert was the Burro Mesa and Chimneys area of Big Bend National Park. Since most of this desert is located in Mexico, Big Bend represents the largest protected portion of the Chihuahuan desert in the United States and is the reason I go to West Texas. In my opinion there is a beauty in the desert that is best seen in black and white images. This series of photographs covers only a very small section of the Big Bend country, it begins in Terlingua and ends at Santa Elena Canyon.

Temperatures are ranging in the triple digits again this week. We’re looking to an age old remedy for this caliber of summer heat: a cold beer. Lucky for us there’s an astounding selection of Blanco’s own Real Ale Brews on tap!

Other effective remedies: a tall, cold glass of fresh squeezed lemonade. Enjoy some icy beverages in the air conditioned splendor of Redbud Cafe an’ be cool.

Another generation of Barn Swallows has fledged…Every year local swallows return to nests in the rafters of the porch here on the square in Blanco. It’s always gratifying to see the young ones take flight in a seasonal cycle that has been going on for as many years as any of us here can remember…

Art at Redbud Cafe

Our current show, Communicating in Color, features the artwork of

Meg LeCompte and Megan Lee

About the Artists:

Margaret (“Meg”) LeCompte was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and like many other Cajuns who came before her, she “got to Texas as fast as she could.” Meg’s early childhood was spent in Houston, but in 2006, she and her family made Austin their home. Meg faces unique challenges as a young woman with autism and limited language skills, but through art, she has found an expressive outlet.  Meg takes great pride in her pieces:  The process of creating brings her great excitement and joy, and she is often heard to remark, “Wow!” or “Cool!” as the development of her work progresses.

Due to her disability, Meg was not afforded the same opportunities for formal art instruction growing up.  As she has matured and become an adult learner, Meg has pursued a variety of creative interests, from cross-stitch and knitting to music and piano.  During the last year and a half, her weekly art classes have enriched her life tremendously.  Her newfound skills have brought her greater focus and satisfaction, as well as a sense of competency and achievement not typically afforded individuals with autism.  Through her art, Meg has gained a new dimension of expressive capabilities, allowing her true self to shine.

Megan Lee was born in Austin, Texas and is an adult with Autism.  Although Megan has limited language skills, she is very competitive when playing video games and loves participating in Special Olympics in bowling, basketball and track.

Individuals with a disability are special.   Special in that they have the biggest heart, happiest smile, and that overall positive attitude that is contagious.  That is Megan Lee.  She is a ray of sunshine.

Artwork includes acrylic paints, water color, pastel, color pencils, and clay pottery.
